Thank you SO much, dear Jesus Contreras – for a marvellous, unforgettable voyage of discovery through the badlands of Tabernas, followed by Sierra de Los Filabres with breathtaking views and typical Almerian villages where the traces of the Moorish period still are alive… Passing along the heights of Calar Alto with its unique energy… And Jesús Contreras guiding us with his inexhaustible knowledge about nature, history,….. An incomparable experience! MUCHÍSIMAS GRACIAS querido Jesús Contreras!!!!

I take this opportunity to appreciate the professionalism that you showed by taking me to Tabernas on a difficult day!. I was so glad that I did not miss seeing this unique place because of weather and as you know, how much i enjoyed and was in awe of that beautiful natural scenery. Thanks for sharing loads of information of the way and personally many other stimulating discussions. You tried your best to show me Tabernas!. Thanks a lot Jesus. I will always remember this special trip.

With my wife Helen and family and friends we have visited the Almeria region for many years. We stay at the HPB private Villas and Apparment at Alfaix and this is where we first met Jesus. Over the past 4 years we have enjoyed many trips with Jesus and as well as a wonderful guide he has become a very good friend. With him we have learned so much of the coulture, geology, history and wildlife ( including Bonelli’s Eagle and Vultures )of this facinating region, always explained with great knowledge and enthusiasm. He knowledge of every tiny village and byway is fantastic and we have had may very good tapas lunches over the years in places we never could have found for ourselves.
Many thanks for sharing all this with us and we look forward to many trips in the furture
Best regards amigo. Trevor and Helen, family and friends.
Jesus has such a special way to show his country, culture, and beautiful landscapes that it is difficult not to fall in love with. I understand why he loves it so much and does not want to leave it. Anyone traveling with Jesus will feel the same. He knows how to communicate his passion and make any trip a wonderful adventure. Jesus asked me why I love Spain. I love Andalusia because of people like him who makes this country so special and unique. Jesus, you are the best ambassador I have met!
Muchas gracias and hasta luego.
We had a very interesting and enjoyable day – we enjoyed the wide variety of the beautiful countryside – hard to choose the best bit but the top of the mountain at the observatory was especially beautiful. Jesus is full of fascinating information about the countryside, the geology, the birds, the plants and the people of this region, which he clearly loves deeply and loves to pass on his enthusiasm. The tapas lunch was delicious and we also enjoyed meeting some of the villagers and seeing your own village and old home – it felt like we were seeing a glimpse of real Spain not tourist Spain and that was a very special part of the trip.
Thanks for a really great day and we hope to be back in Almeria soon for another trip!

We’ve experienced 2 excellent trips with Jesus this year, and everything about his trips has already been said about the very personal touch that he gives. Jesus has shared very special birding areas with us, his knowledge of everything natural and the love of his home Almeria, and it just makes us want to learn more! To all our questions we get a thoughtful and considered answer and we will return with even more next year as we explore this amazing region again. Thank you for very memorable days out Jesus and for lots of laughter, we look forward to seeing more Bonnellieseagulls in the future!
We have just come back from our third trip with Jesus and can’t recommend him highly enough. What he doesn’t know about Almeria is not worth knowing. He took us to places that we would never have discovered without him and his remarkable and extensive knowledge of the local wildlife, geology, culture and history makes you appreciate the area all the more. His enthusiasm and warmth are contagious. His approach to guiding is unique – he doesn’t just point things out but explains and puts things in context. He is full of ideas and suggestions. The trip was the highlight of a wonderful holiday. We cannot wait until next year for another trip with him.
Sally and I, first-time visitors to Andalucia, set up a day trip with Jesus weeks ago from Vermont, asking home to show us some birds and to give us some ideas for the day. We met on September 20, 2018. In short, it was a wonderful experience in every respect. Jesus has many talents and we especially liked the way the three of us became friends at once and had fun while seeing some birds and beauty. We tired in the afternoon and he was very supportive of our desire to “call it a day.” We highly recommend Jesus.
What a great half day with Jesus in the Cabo de Gato Park, Almeria. Jesus is incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Thank you
Thank you Jesus for a fantastic trip birdwatching & looking at plants. Your knowledge & enthusiasm made the trip the highlight of our holiday. I learnt a lot & enjoyed myself very much. I highly recommend you as a guide.
